Web 2.0 and Cloud Computing

It is always good to compare different technologies. That way we can see whether the technology is maturing with time and is worth considering it for real. But the challenge is to find a tool that would help in this endeavor. I found “Gartner Hype Cycle” [GHC] really effective in comparing different technologies and their evolution.

So I wanted to see how web 2.0 is doing over last three years and where does cloud computing stand on this technology curve. I always believed that image is worth thousand blogs…so here you go – GHC for 2006, 07 and 2008 and the evolution of web 2.0 vs. cloud computing. ..
